Normally the Autonumber field is read only - you cannot change the content because the next counter number is fixed by a formula - however TaroWorks allow you to map to it primary as an Id Field to update existing records. Please note the following behaviours when you map a question to an Autonumber field:
- Once you have mapped a question to an Autonumber field, that field will automatically become the Id Field. When you unmap the question, the Id Field will revert to blank.
- Should the value you enter into the mapped question does not match any records, TaroWorks will attempt to create a new record using the next Autonumber. This reduce the chance of having the job not being able to sync.
